In news that sounds like The Coen brothers were challenged to pen a wild spaghetti western in 30 seconds, a man armed with a colostomy bag was arrested at Kid Rock’s Nashville bar over the weekend.

As Consequence of Sound report, law enforcement were called to Kid Rock’s famed Honky Tonk Rock ‘N Roll Steakhouse on Saturday evening in response to reports of an unruly man.

So it goes: the deviant involved in this operation, Nicholas Newhart, was off his rocker and blocking the tavern’s outside emergency exit. Police were called to the scene after Newhart refused security’s demands to leave. Upon their arrival, our kooky antihero whipped out his colostomy bag from his pants and began swinging it around.

Traumatically, at least two police officers had faeces flung at them.

“When the Metro police officers arrived to the location to assist security the defendant took out his colostomy bag from the inside of his front pants area and started to swing the bag around from left to right hitting two of the Metro police officers with his feces,” an official affidavit detailing the incident red.

Newhart has been charged with “assault on the two Metro police officers, disorderly conduct and public intoxication.”

As COS note, a local Facebook group, “Scoop: Nashville”, claims that a number of patrons were also privy to being flung in the face with shit and that “at least one officer has left work to change clothes.”

Kid Rock’s Big Honky Tonk Rock ‘N Roll Steakhouse has been a real headline-stealing institution over the past year. Last year, the Nashville venue copped heat after refusing to adhere to social-distancing guidelines issued by the mayor of Nashville. Subsequently, the bar’s beer permit was revoked, which lead Kid Rock’s business partner to declare, “The Nashville government is, like, communist.”
